I had a facial and hot stone massage this passed weekend at the Tree of Life day spa and both were great. The staff is very friendly and professional. This wasn't the most luxurious spa I've been to and they could do some things to improve, but I would go back.

We are too old for two twelve hour days in the car! Argh! By the time we arrived in Bar Harbor, we could barely move and a massage seemed in order. We tried to book with our hotel, but no availability, so a quick search and we found "Tree of Life"---so happy we did! On Cottage Street, only a short... More

I went to the Tree of Life Day spa as a girl's day out with my mother in law. She had never had a spay day, and she was absolutely enthralled. We had hot stone massages, facials and foot baths. Each service was wonderfully soothing and relaxing. It was worth every penny. We got our full hour for each service,... More

$100 for a deep tissue, and not as good as an average one at Massage Envy for 1/3 the price. Convenient location.

Locally owned is what got my attention, bar harbor inn spa and the bar harbor club are not locally owned as I found after going into each spa. This is a smaller, peaceful, relaxing, real 'spa' no fumes from hair or nails as like the other 2 'salons'. I had the facial & hydro footbath combo that were done by... More

After a day of hiking the Acadia National Park trails, the couples' massage at Tree of Life Day Spa was great! The staff were professional, and the massage was so relaxing.

had to wait to even be spoken to, the girl at the desk was rude, and the prices are too much for what service was provided.

Both my husband and I had massages here, and we compared notes afterwards. Both were among the best we have ever had, and we like to do this activity when we vacation. My husband studied massage therapy and he knows what to look for, so when he is pleased, I know they are doing things right.

I am fortunate to be part of a group of ladies that travel once a year to a different Spa in different states. With that said the Tree of Life Spa was a incredible experience from my head to my toes. I had a "hot stone massage" to start it was pure magic, second I did a Mud wrap which... More
